Local photographer, Jo Gray exhibits on The Leitrim Design House ARTWALL.
The Leitrim Design House are delighted to launch When Light Evokes Shadows, Reflections of Mine, a new exhibition on ARTWALL by local photographer’ Jo Gray on Thursday November 29th at 7pm. This exhibition explores the beauty of North Connaught landscapes, its light and shadows. It will run until January 31st.
Jo is a native of Carrick-On-Shannon and is self- taught in the Art of Photography. His portfolio spans many years of living and traveling through the island of Ireland. Its landscape, myths, legends, music and poetry offers Jo a rich and endless source of inspiration for his work.
“I seek out hidden and undiscovered places with the focus on encouraging people to look more closely at the beauty that surrounds us. With an instinctive eye I strive to capture beauty everywhere. After more than 25 years of exploring Ireland and all its landscape and culture, I still look at things with a fresh eye and respond with the same awe that has inspired me from the beginning. I like to capture those evocative and fleeting moments in life. I hope that my work encourages people to look more closely to the beauty that surrounds us.”
Jo’s attention to detail even extends to the presentation of his work. His limited edition “Giclee” prints are on high quality archival art paper and inks they have a life expectancy of 100 years. All printing, mounting and framing is carried out by Jo in his own studio to the highest standard, surpassing all the Fine Art Guild standards for conservation prints and framing. He uses True View conservation glass which blocks out 90% of UV light.
Jo’s collection of work fits neatly within the Leitrim Design House, home of Irish Craft and Design. As with all of our collections, these stamped and signed limited edition fine art prints may be purchased on deposit and paid off over a number of weeks. This is a wonderful opportunity to invest in a local artist and start your own art collection which may be handed down for generations to come.
